Final Fantasy XIII's Lightning Looks Glamorous as a Model in More Louis Vuitton Fashion Shots

A few days ago, we reported about Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII appearing as a fashion model in a new advertisement campaign for Louis Vuitton’s “Series 4” spring-summer 2016 prêt-à-porter line.

Afterwards, Louis Vuitton Artistic Director Nicolas Ghesquière shared more pictures of the stoic pink-haired heroine on his Instagram account, which you can see above and below.

For the sake of comparison, you can also check out the real life looks at the bottom of the post, directly from the brand’s fashion show in October, courtesy of Louis Vuitton’s official site.

While I have no doubt that the comment section below will be full of anger from Lightning’s very vocal detractors, it’s refreshing to see a video game character design celebrated and showcased in the serious (and at times a tad uptight) world of fashion.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
